EZ Sweetz in Walmart less concentrated?
 
I was excited to see that Walmart now carries EZ Sweetz but is it me or is it a lot less concentrated? I have to use a lot more to get the same sweetness that I used to get from the one I ordered online. :dunno:

I haven't seen it. I'll look the next time I go. Are you talking about "sucalose-to-go"?

I know when I bought it from Netrition it was better in the small bottle. More concentrated.

Hi Rosethorns, Its not Sucralose to go. I have that too. The bottle says EZ Sweetz. I used to order the big bottle from Netrition and I know its less concentrated than the small bottle but the one at Walmart seems even less concentrated. I may go back to ordering online. On top of that, its been hard to get the amounts right since the nozzle just squirts, I can't get drops.

The WalMart in Osprey, FL carries it. Here are the conversions:

2 drops ez-sweetz = 2 t. sugar or 1 pkt.
1/2 t. = 1 cup sugar or 24 pkts.
1 bottle = 5.5 lbs. sugar or 400 pkts.

Ok thats different from what I have but I have pure sucralose powder. I make my own.

I have to take a look at the ez sweets.

I get mine from netrition and I have noticed that I need to use a lot more of it to get the sweetness that I used to get before.....I thought maybe it was just that bottle, but now a new bottle is doing the same thing...

I use to get it from Netrition but when I got the large bottle, it seemed the formula was different.

The large bottle is half the concentration as the small bottle with blue cap...it States so on their site snd netrtion site. The version at Walmart is similar in concentration as the large bottle with yellow cap.

I noticed the same thing about the bigger bottle from Netrition. I didn't really pay attention to what it said, I guess. I had been ordering the stronger one for ages and just thought, "Yipee, a bigger bottle."

I always preferred to get the larger bottle from Netrition so I'm not comparing it to the smaller bottle. I know that one is more concentrated. All things being equal, the Walmart version should be the same as the large bottle from Netrition but I'm finding it less sweet than what I'm used to getting online. I need a few good squirts to get the same sweetness I used to get from 2-3 drops.

I thought so too. Tulipsand Roses you think it's less than the bigger bottle?Hmmmmmm

They are not going to get return customers.............

I carry the small 2 oz. bottle in my purse. It has the yellow cap. The chart on the front says 1 drop = 1 tsp. I prefer this over Sweetzfree since that one seems much sweeter to me and harder to control for 1/2 a drop.

lterry913 02-07-2013 06:07 PM

Hmm...I tried the walmart ez sweet and thought it tasted just like ez sweets in bigger bottle...jmo tho.

I always buy the small bottle from Netrition. I also buy the one from Walmart and find it is not as sweet. Plus I don't like that it squirts out instead of drops. I carry the Walmart one in my purse though because if I'm out its usually only used to sweeten a drink.
